if below snapshot is what you want to achieve, I think dual axis is the solution you can use to achieve.
I attached the sample workbook with 10.0 for your reference.
Hope this could help

Hi ZZ, Thanks for your replay. Unfortunately, this is close, but not quite what I need. I need to have all the sites at their exact coordinates on the map with the zip code score data (heat map) layer on it. Because yours is linked on ZIP, it isn't showing all the site not are they at their exact lat/long coordinates. I'm thinking maybe I need to create my own map layer somehow.
Let me know if you have any other possible solutions, I appreciate your help.
sites at exact coordinates
vs. sites just in those zips with score data
another solution I am thinking of is using the mapbox.
with mapbox, you can create your customized map as your background, in your case, you could create the map with all the symbols as background by using mapbox and then connect Tableau to mapbox and then put the heatmap on top the map.
There's probably a better way to do it than this, but maybe this works for you:
-You'll have to put all the data into one file. So in this example there are no sites where there is no zip data.
- Create a csv of the sites to use as custom geocoding source.
- Create a dual axis map.
- Import custom geocoding for the Store #.
- Use filled map for one axis and Store # as shape in the other.
